Created Gallery


I have had a meeting with a lovely lady who owns the Created Gallery in Chesterfield, Deidre Gage, and she is going to stock some of my designs. They are available for you to view there right now! Here are just few of the pieces you can purchase there :

The ring is sterling silver and has a 25x18mm labradorite cabochon set in it. The necklace in the centre is made from green banded agate, aventurine and carnelian square shaped donut beads. This is all strung on brown silky cord. The other necklace is made from unusually shaped wood jasper donuts, round ocean jasper donuts and large coins of mocca turquoise jasper.

I'm really proud of these designs and Deidre loved them.

Busy Time

It's been a busy week for me! The craft fair didn't happen because of the snow! We had another three inches in Derbyshire!! I've been busy finding some craft fairs to stand at and been quite successful although I would advise anyone out there to book early! All the decent fairs seem to get booked up really early! Anyway, I've got several places booked including a stand at Apples and Pears and Crafty Wares on 22nd May in Nottingham, the Melton Mowbray County fair (really excited about this one) and waiting to get details for booking Land Rover Max at Newark showground in July!

I need some advice though, do any of you rent a credit card machine for your bigger events? I'm thinking of doing this as I can't accept credit card payments at present apart from through my website! Can the cost of doing this be justified by the increase in sales? Comments please!

Back soon, got more creating to do today!!
